Epiphone Emperor Swingster 'Delta Blue Metallic' Hollowbody Electric Guitar

The Epiphone Emperor Swingster™ is a hollowbody electric guitar that excels in a wide range of genres, including jazz, blues, rockabilly, country and rock. It has a 5-ply layered maple body, mahogany neck with a comfortable and SlimTaper™ profile for excellent playability and a balanced tone. The two Epiphone SwingBucker™ pickups each have a dedicated volume and tone control as well as push/pull switches to provide series/parallel switching - so you'll never run out of different tone options.

Aesthetically, it's a stunning guitar, with an Indian laurel fretboard with block inlays, and the intricate Tree of Life inlays on the large Clipped Dove Wing headstock. Notably, it also has the LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge mounted on a pinned wooden base so it won't move out of place when you use the Bigsby® vibrato, while the wire handle is both stylish and great for handling those sonic dives. Lastly, the nickel hardware and the Delta Metallic Blue finish give the guitar an unmistakeable presence both on the stage and to the ears.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
